How to use Play Cards
Using PLAY CARDS™ is as simple as, picking a card, collecting a few household items and getting playful!
Using PLAY CARDS™ is as easy as 1, 2, 3!
1. Choose a card.
2. Collect the things you need from around the house.
3. Start playing!
During phase 1 of PLAY CARD prep, you can involve your children. Prompting them to choose their play by looking at the illustrations. Phase 2 of PLAY CARD prep, is also a great time to involve children. Turn this phase into a treasure hunt, a race to play or an adventure! The magic of these ideas is the play can start as one thing and then imaginations and inspiration take over, making them into something else. From basket weaving to turning a washing basket into a boat? What a great adventure!
